0.61.09 for Ubuntu 8.04?

How can I install version 0.61.09 on a Ubuntu 8.04 system?
The latest version in the repos is 0.61.07 and at the synfig download page I can’t find a 8.04 version.
Are there any debs or do I have to compile it myself?

(Need to install it on my render server. 0.61.07 didn’t want to open my files created with 0.61.09).

You’ll have to ask Ubuntu to provide backports or otherwise just compile it yourself (which isn’t that hard).


This is a SVN revision sometime after the release of 0.61.09, so it should render fine.

Thank you!
That did the trick.
